In case you haven’t heard, the 2016 Color of the Year has been chosen—but this year, it’s not one but TWO colors. Introducing Rose Quartz and Serenity, which will be bringing to the year a sense of calm and peace. If you are thinking of adding new colors to your home this year, contact a trained consultant at Treasure Coast Window Fashions in West Palm Beach, FL. We’ll help you determine if these colors will be right for your style.
Rose Quartz (Pantone color 13-1520) is a pinkish hue, which will bring warm and soothing tones to a room. Serenity (Pantone color 15-3919) comes from the blue family and adds a sense of tranquility and wellness. These two were chosen as a pair this year to complement each other and create balance to bring calm to the stresses of the modern day.

Color Marketing Group
Twice a year, the Color Marketing Group (color/trend forecasters and home décor and fashion designers) meet to sort through past trends and determine what they believe future trends in color will be. Their choices influence many industries that produce products—from automotive to fashion to home design. Perhaps your décor has already been touched by a previous Color of the Year—and perhaps they’ll be right this year too!
What Influences Color Trends
Several factors can influence how we feel about color—it’s not just a designer’s whim. Instead, it’s about where we are, where we want to go, and how people are feeling or not feeling. For example, if the economy is strong, popular color choices are rich, deep, and vibrant. When it is weak, we see trends toward light colors and soft/safe colors. Current and upcoming events (such as the Olympics, a Presidential election, or even a blockbuster movie) can impact how we feel about color as well—when major events are forecasted, softer and safe colors are what we are drawn to.
Handling Trending Colors
The above colors might be leading the way for the year, but don’t worry if you don’t like them. Remember that forecasted colors are merely trends—different ones will be around next year!
